The Loft is ideal for country lovers, with excellent walking (Glyndwr's Way, waterfalls), birdwatching and animals on the farm. It's a timber-panelled first floor loft, accessed via an external wooden staircase, above the former dairy (now a workshop) on the owners' smallholding. Llugwy Farm is near the source of the River Lugg, 1.5 miles west of Llangunllo, which has a village pub; Llanbister is 5 miles away, Presteigne and Knighton are both 10 miles away.
The accommodation is approached via an external wooden staircase with storm porch. The property is heated primarily by a Scandinavian wood burning stove – full instructions provided! – with a couple of electric heaters to supplement. The Loft has some sloping ceilings, but good headroom, and once inside, the accommodation is all on one level.
Entrance: via the external staircase.
Kitchen Diner: with fitted units, tiled floor, LPG gas cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and extractor fan; table with four chairs; two stools if required for additional guests. An open doorway leads into the spacious bed-sitting room adjacent.
Bed-Sitting Room: with tiled floor, Scandinavian wood-burning stove, futon sofa, four folding chairs, pine bedroom suite including double bed, small Freeview TV and video player.
To the other side of the kitchen diner, a door leads into a second sleeping space:
Cabin Bunks: tiny bedroom space with built-in cabin bed and roll-out second bed below; these beds are only suitable for children. Tiled floor, fan heater.
Bathroom: Accessed via the cabin bunk bedroom. A well-presented bathroom with bath, WC, basin and heated towel rail. A shower hose is provided for use on the bath taps.
Utility: below The Loft is the owners’ workshop, including a shared laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and shower. Separate WC and basin. There is also a small shop selling produce from the farm including jam and eggs and a free video library.
Outside: guests have a small grassed area to one side of the farm entrance, with picnic table and space to park in order to keep the car away from the farm animals if required! Guests can visit the farm, stables and fields (children must be supervised), to see sheep, goats, llamas, donkeys, ponies, ducks and hens! Adopt an Animal scheme run by the owners, who are happy to show guests around and allow them to learn about and help with work on the smallholding. Please note that there will be friendly pet dogs loose in the farmyard.
This is very much an off-grid experience (no mobile phone reception or internet), in a peaceful, rural location for outdoor living, exploring the 23 acres of riverside and farmland.
Nearby, there is local horse riding, motorcycling, rally driving, fishing and clay shooting, all within easy reach.
Pets are welcome and accommodation can be arranged for guests' own horses, by arrangement with the owners and at extra cost.

We had a fantastic stay at Llugwy farm, which is set in breathtaking scenery in mid Wales. Our hosts Andy and Di were welcoming to both ourselves and especially our children who they took time to introduce the variety of animals on site. The children had a magical holiday and the accommodation was special - with the feel of a log cabin set high in the trees. Truly a special place to visit. 5 stars.Mr Saddington - 8th June 2018
Brilliant brilliant excellent! Just what anyone would like to wake up to. The farm family were extremely welcoming to us, my our son loved it and didn't wanna leave. The pets are very friendly we miss them already and can't wait to head back next year. The JAM is a must try recommended from the jones family Mrs Claudia Jones - 16th November 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Loft, Llugwy Farm. The accommodation was as described on the website and met our expectations. It had all the facilities needed for a weeks stay for a family of four with young children. The owners made us all feel very welcome and the children learnt a lot about the animals and helped to feed them in the morning and evening. The accommodation was in a great central location for us to visit places in Wales and England most within 30 minutes drive. We enjoyed being without internet and mobile signal whilst at the Loft.Mr Julian Rees - 21st August 2017
Fantastic location for a rural experience. Hosts Andy and Di were lovely and made us feel so welcome. The kids loved ever minute and now want their own farm!!C Bussell - 8th August 2017
Lovely, welcoming hosts and a wonderful ecletic mix of well-cared for farm animals who are friendly and easily approachable which enhanced the stay.Ms R Manning - 1st August 2017
We really enjoyed our stay with Andy and Di, it was perfect for our family with young children. Comfortable and cosy but without lots of trinkets and stuff to worry about breaking! Would definitely recommend.Mr Benjamin Mathers - 20th February 2017
This was our 3rd stay at this property - we like it so much!! It is set in a lovely location with no Mobile or Internet connection which makes it the perfect place for a 'digital detox'. The owners are always welcoming and encourage you to meet their animals and help them with the feeding etc. It is convenient for the Heart of Wales Line and we enjoyed a day out in Shrewsbury with a return train fare of less than Ã‚Â£30 for 3 adults. I am sure we will stay at Llugwy again.Mr J David - 18th January 2017
Beautiful, couldn't have asked for a nicer place.Mrs Guy - 18th August 2016
So quiet and under-rated. Beautiful countryside and so much to do. Fantastic holiday for family .... all adults and grandchildren well catered for. Hosts are just fabulous.Miss Hankin - 16th August 2016
This was a very last minute booking and what a great place, the owners were fantastic with our children and very accommodating. We were so happy that we are booking another holiday with them.Mrs Lewendon Harper - 14th June 2016
Lovely friendly people. We were there on business so unfortunately didn't have time to appreciate the farm properly, but would definitely go back for a holiday.Mr Yates - 25th April 2016
Wales Holidays offers some of the most interesting cottages - often with more character - and with fair prices.Mr Barnes - 7th January 2016
Great holiday, lovely place, Andy and Di are so nice, going back next year.Mr Simmonds - 4th November 2015

Great time we had. Many thanksMr Al-Zahrani - 5th October 2015
The owners welcoming and the farm fascinating.Mr Hern - 18th September 2015
Fantastic place to stay, grandchildren enjoyed the 'farm' experience. Very convenient for days out around Mid PowysMiss Hankin - 11th August 2015
Hosts were excellent, very friendly and approachable. We had a wonderful time.Mrs Slatcher - 13th June 2015
I loved it and the setting. It was just what I needed for what I wanted. Especially it having no mobile reception..that was PURE BLISS. My dog loved the use of a big field right next to the accommodation, and he had no problems with the farm animals till the donkey brayed! Boy did his ears go back and he looked woeful. I hope to be a repeat visitor. I would have liked an armchair and didn't realise till cleaning up morning that there was an alternative. And the owners were charming and welcoming to me and Buddy.Mr Wallis - 5th May 2015
The Loft is an oasis of peace and the proprietors, Andy and Di were absolutely lovely.Mr Hunt - 20th April 2015

What a great property with really welcoming hosts. We shall be returning.Mr Baldwin - 4th January 2015
